For many years my only copy of Vol 2 was the stereo copy.  I had not
gotten it by the time of the assassination, and found it in Stereo
Record King in Phila around 1965.  I GRABBED IT QUICKLY!  I got monos
from about 2or 3 pressing plants years later.  But I remember shopping
for the best price of Vol 1 the weekend of Thanksgiving and seeing, for
example, 300copies mono and no stereo on the counter at E.J. Korvettes
in Paramus NJ for $1.79 which turned out to be the best price but they
were GONE by the time I returned about an hour later!!!    It was the
closest store of the ones I checked, so it was first and then I decided
to get it as I circled back towards home.  My brother in law ended up
getting it for me in NYC later the afternoon.  

I have a shelf full of the tribute albums which took over the xmas
season of 63 as this and My Son the Folk Singer had taken over the 62
season.  I'm working on an article about this and was showing Leah some
of the Billboard articles last night.  But they are missing a couple of
the important issues from the on=line file, and I already have those
photocopied though.

 By the way, despite charting high on the Billboard STEREO charts,
stereo
 copies of the two First Family albums as well as My Son the Folk Singer
 are very rare. Of the thousands of copies of each that I have seen, I
 have only three stereo copies of the 1st First Family, and one each of
 Vol 2 and My Son. During the phenominal sales period for these albums
 Dec 62 thru 63 I never saw one stereo copy of any of these in dozens of
 major stores in the NYC area. I think that the reissues of the two
 First Family albums have been mastered off of mono vinyl pressings.

 ======= 
 I vividly remember buying Volume 2 of THE FIRST FAMILY at Sam Goody in
 Valley Stream, LI, right after it came out. On sale - think it was
$2.88!
 
 Near the front entrance, they had a BIG pile of the mono albums and a
much
 smaller stack of stereos side-by-side. No shrink wrap! I bought the
mono.
